We find in the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, the first-hand accounts of His life and works written by those who loved Him. Unfortunately, when we read the Bible, we filter it through the prism of our Western culture. If we strip the traditions and assumptions from what we read and apply what we learn about Jesus culture, we will truly get a picture of life as Jesus lived it. This book looks into the history of Jesus times, the environment in which the people lived, how they used their language to convey meanings, and the mind-set of the cultures present. By doing this, we will be able to get inside the thinking of the people who were involved in the life of Jesus. We will see His life in a true and dramatic way. Most of all, we will be able to see how Jesus worked with His friends and enemies. From this we should be able to live a life in which we follow His steps. (1 Peter 2:21) The book also includes a harmony at the end. This simple reference tool will show the chronological order of the events in the Gospels.
